Kim Jaejoong joins Time Slip Dr. Jin

Kim Jaejoong (Protect the Boss) has been cast in the upcoming time-travel-medical-historical drama Time Slip Dr. Jin starring Song Seung-heon, in what will be the singer-actor’s first sageuk role to date. The manga adaptation features a Doogie-esque hero who travels back in time 150 years, where he learns that maybe there’s more to being a doctor than a massive IQ. Because apparently that’s not something you can learn after 1860. But… how will we know he’s a TV doctor if he’s not wearing the shiny white labcoat and model-strutting down the hall with two rows of interns at his sides?

Jaejoong will be playing Kim Kyung-tak, the descendant to a long line of master swordsmen, and the best warrior of his generation. He’s competitive and prideful, but he also has a softer, innocent side: his character has a single-minded devotion to his first love. Sigh, don’t they all? He’ll be going head-to-head with the hero Dr. Jin, though I’m wondering how literal that could be. Will the scalpel-wielder be picking up a sword and vice versa? Or are they just going to be fighting over a girl?

With all the time travel in dramaland these days, it’s a wonder we’re not going to end up with a prince on a proposal mission, a high school student as a doctor, and a neurosurgeon living on a rooftop. Fourth dimension’s a tricky thing, boys. Don’t get stuck in each other’s wormholes. Oh. Ew. I just grossed myself out.

Time Slip Dr. Jin is currently being shopped at cable networks, with reports that it’ll find a home at Channel A.

perhaps the samurai (played by Koide keisuke) Jin meets in the beginning. but I'm really sensing quite a heavy rewrite with the characters to fit Korean history.

Yeah, sounds like a rewrite. I don't really recall a major character matching this description. Korean production will defiantly have to pump-up the romance as it was mostly a lot of longing looks in the original.

@girlfriday...re:"With all the time travel in dramaland these days, it’s a wonder we’re not going to end up with a prince on a proposal mission, a high school student as a doctor, and a neurosurgeon living on a rooftop."

I'll take all 3....in hanboks and ,alternatively, studded-rocker-gear....with a side order of OST's by T.O.P. and/or Wheesung (yes, I know he's in service, but a girl can dream)

....as a sci-fi fan -- I'm hoping this time-travel trend with flux out of fantasy and cause a Kdrama or movie to actually go full-fledged SCI-FI instead of melo-slash-fantasy.

gimme Korean Blade Runner...please. :)

@ megara - YES. I do. ...the gender benders in asian dramas command attention because of the *homogenous pretty factor*...there were a couple in which the girl actually 'might' be mistaken for a young boy...but overall, ALL such dramas require suspension ~

...as does time travel. Kinda make me giggle how THAT's the new trend. It should be fun (crosses fingers)

A skilled warrior and master swordman. But innocent and soft. He kills you but you won't feel the pain. Clean and compassionate. Nothing personal.
He teaches anatomy with the help of his dead frozen girlfriend's body. And he shows how to do stitches properly. Before reanimating her.

LOL!
Who shall we cast as the girlfriend here?
(Not the frozen dead one. The current alive one?)

She has to be someone we can picture with THT and Hero?
How old is she?
Is she beautiful? Spunky? Smart? Sunny? Sexy in hanbok?
OH! Let's make her a genius gisang forced to undergo severe gayageum training and sword dancing contests, when all she wants to do is study chemistry and isolate oxygen.

Yoon Eun Hye! She'll brew coffee for him in an earthenpot and when he drinks it, he'll sigh with satisfaction and say, "This is GOOD!" And she'll smile sweetly and say, "One day I dream of becoming a coffeepotter." That's sageuk speak for barista.

After these past few years, you'd think I'd have learned by now.
But in my own defense, that really was one of her 'drive-by' comments. Sudden and unexpected.

I'll go with her, too. Of course, her acting is so strong that she'll steal the show from all the other 'prettys'.
Catch her performances in "Hon" and one of the best recent dramas, "What's Up?!"

Did you really?
She certainly is the "IT" girl, isn't she?

I think she is adorable and everything, but can't we try out someone different? My main complaint against her is she plays too soft. She is supposed to be soft but tough but all I get is soft but trying to be tough.

Pretty-ness overload!!! Glad to have JJ back, he will look good in saguek gear...not sure what this drama is about.

I am only worried about the fact that's it's from a jdrama that's sounds kinda heavy.. And also jdramas lack the romance aspect of things. Seriously, except for 1 or 2 dramas, I was always left disappointed. So, I'm just hoping everything works out.

This is definitely one unexpected drama choice for JJ. I can't... isn't he supposed to be athletically... fobby? Heh

the original JIN has some solid acting... so i am a little concern about the casting... i think both SSH and jae are decent and serviceable... i definitely think jae has potential to be much better... the good thing is that.. both leads look good.... all i can say is that it's a big shoe to fill and i am sure viewers will be comparing both version...

i have heard PMY be the female lead... i am hoping no... let it be Moon Chae Won.. i think she has good acting chop and can has chemistry with almost anyone...

Ditto on this. Even if the actors are average if the crew behind the production is excellent, I'm sure it'll be good...but that's a big IF.

Jaejoong CAN act.
Don't be fooled by his pretty face or his 'idol' status.
Try to watch his work:
I suggest "Heaven's Postman" or "Protect The Boss"

Try them if you can. I'm not into kpop, but seriously! He is a good actor. I'm excited about his future as an drama/movie actor.

I might give it a try. I absolutely adored Jin tho.

I'm excited to see Jaejoong in another drama. Hopefully his acting skills have gotten better. As for the hair...I wonder if this will be the return of those long locks from the trinagle era.

Examples to those who don't know what I'm talking about:
